Welcome to Bulunga Lodge,

Situated on the breathtaking Wild Coast, the Lodge is nestled in one of the most beautiful locations in South Africa. An eco-friendly, Fair Trade certified, affordable, multi-night destination for South African and overseas visitors alike; the Lodge is superb for backpackers and cultural wanderers of this Earth.The Bulungula Lodge sustains local culture and the planet, and is 100% owned and managed by the vibrant, traditional Nqileni village, a Xhosa community. The Xhosa community is an integral part of daily life in and around the Lodge. With no fences, no crime, and no hassles, the village is full of friendly smiles and lots of animals. You are invited to be part of this community throughout your stay - becoming part of the Bulungula Lodge and village community is the whole point of coming here!

The Lodge is powered by the sun and includes the legendary ’rocket’ hot-water showers, our water comes from our own borehole and the virtually odourless compost toilets are the most colourful in Africa. 10 theme-painted traditionally built rondavel huts have beautiful sea and forest views. Stay in permanent tents on platforms under the trees or bring and pitch your own tent. Whichever roof you choose, you'll sleep well, to the sound of the Indian Ocean's surf.

ACCOMMODATION:
For accommodation, we have 5 beautifully decorated huts with 4-6 beds and 5 beautiful huts with double beds (or 2 single beds). They all have bedding and beautiful views. We also have accommodation in lux safari tents which are on wooden platforms in the forest (most have sea views) and have a double bed or 2 single beds with bedding and an electric light... you can watch the dolphins from your bed!

EATING AT THE LODGE :
We offer a FULL MENU - Sunrise to Sunset - at affordable prices. Experience Traditional South African Cuisine, as well as our NEW Vegetarian and Vegan range! BREAKFAST :Cereals/porridge, Toast, Cooked Breakfasts ... with FREE tea and coffee all day! LUNCH :Monster Toasted Sandwiches, and Traditional Xhosa Lunch.DINNER / SUPPER :
We have a Supper Menu from Monday to Sunday, offering a range of typically home-cooked South African meals, as well as an exciting new Vegetarian/Vegan range. DESSERT :Oh yes, there will be something sweet for both the sweetheart, and the sweet tooth ;) BAR :our bar stocks beers, ciders, cold drinks, wine and some spirits. There is also munchie food: chips/crisps, chocolates, and biscuits.

For self-caterers, there is only a very basic spaza shop nearby, so it's best to bring supplies with you but please leave as much packaging behind at the shop as possible. Also, there is limited fridge space, so please bring as few perishables as possible or bring a cooler box with ice.

ACTIVITIES:
Lots to do at Bulungula
Something different happens every day. Explore the forest and gather herbs with the local herbalist. Ride a horse over the hills and far away. Canoe the magic river. Go on a guided history and culture tour. Learn how to fish in the sea, or watch the sunrise on the beach with hot pancakes. Challenge yourself by learning the basics of womanpower along the Wild Coast. Or have a fantastic massage.

All these businesses are 100% owned and run by members of the local community so your money goes where its most needed.

Many of these businesses are still in their infancy and are not always as professional as you would find in the big cities (no-one in our village had any experience of tourism prior to 2004). But everyone puts there heart and soul into their new venture and as a result there is a unique, fresh edge to these activities..
